Your Georgia Tax Dollars Can Help HCA

What if there was a way for you to decide where some of your state tax dollars go...and what if those dollars could go to Harvester Christian Academy?

IT'S EXTRAORDINARY, BUT SOMETHING WE ALL DO PERSONALLY AND CORPORATELY EVERY YEAR CAN ACTUALLY HELP HCA.

Through the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, individual taxpayers and corporations can redirect some of their tax dollars to HCA and receive a 100% TAX CREDIT!

Since 2008, GOAL has been partnering with independent schools so that families in our state have access to better K-12 educational opportunities for their children, and their tax contributions can play a vital role in improving those opportunities.

Tax Credit Allowances

What started as a state fund with a cap of $20 million has now grown to $100 million available scholarship dollars! Georgia GOAL will continue to submit any tax credit applications submitted to its website until they are notified that the cap has been reached.
